What is Numerology
The ancient science of numerology is the study of numbers and how these numbers reflect your life. Although is often viewed as an occult mystery, it is not very mysterious at all. If you look at your daily life, you will recognize that you are identified and linked to huge networks of numbering systems every day – social security, telephone, credit cards, time of day, travel tickets, banks and on and on.
The numbers used for calculation and interpretation by a numerologist are taken from the numbers in your birth date and the letters in your name at birth. Using all the numbers in your birth date, numbers over nine are reduced to a single digit by adding the numbers together until they reduce to a single digit. The resulting number is known as the Life Number.

The Life Number in this example is 7. Using the Life Number, numerologists arrive at information about a person’s internal traits as well as their life’s path and destiny. This number represents the road/path your life travels, and the people and conditions you deal with in your lifetime. It is sometimes thought of the main road you are destined to travel.
Also, numerology’s life path numbers represent your life’s mission. It reflects your purpose for being here. The knowledge you receive from a reading can help you get the best out of your life.
In numerology, the name number represents your character and describes what you consciously know and do best. The question arises whether to use the name found on the birth certificate or the one you currently use. Most numerologists recommend that both names be calculated and considered for the most accurate reading.
How do you arrive at name numbers? Every letter in your name has a corresponding number which in turn has a specific meaning. Using a special chart, numerologists change the letters in your name to numbers for their calculations and readings.
